the linearization is just finding a straight line that is close to the curve at the given point. That is just the tangent line. So, since when y = √(1+2x), y' = 1/√(1+2x) y(0) = 1 y'(0) = 1 and the point-slope form for the line is y-1 = 1(x-0) y = x+1 A=1 ...

#3 A solid has a base in the form of the ellipse: x^2/25 + y^2/16 = 1. Find the volume if every cross section perpendicular to the x-axis is an isosceles triangle whose altitude is 6 inches. #4 Use the same base and cross sections as #3, but change the axis to the y-axis.

As written, you have ax + b/cx + d = 2 acx^2 + (d-2)cx + b = 0 x = [c(2-d)±√((c(d-2))^2-4abc)]​/2ac I assume you meant (ax+b)/(cx+d)=2 2(ax+b) = (cx+d) 2ax + 2b = cx + d (2a-c)x = d-2b x = (d-2b)/(2a-c)
